How can I set the date format in Writer so that whenever I select
INSERT->FIELDS->DATE it will insert a hard
December 31, 1999 (for example) instead of the 12/31/99 which is totally
inappropriate for correspondence.
Having to re-specify INSERT->FIELDS->OTHER->DATE->DATE(fixed)->December 31,
1999 every time is just plain annoying.
Even better would be to add a menu item of just INSERT->Datef that would do
the job.
Using LO now, previous versions had the same problem.
